Wintry Meringue Pops

Posted on 31 December 2018

Putting meringues on a stick makes it easy for your guests to grab ‘n go during the holidays! Wrapped in cellophane, these treats become a nice gift. We added Peppermint Extract to these meringues but there are many options to change the flavor and/or color to suit your mood or occasion! Makes about 20 meringue pops, depending on size.


  • pastry bag fitted with star tip
  • 20 silver or white lollipop sticks
  • silver, grey, and/or white sprinkles, for decorating


  1. Preheat the oven to 200℉. Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Whip egg whites on high speed to stiff peaks.
  3. With mixer going, add sugar very slowly, “raining” it in.
  4. Add vinegar.
  5. Whip on medium speed until stiff, glossy and smooth, about 5 minutes.
  6. Fold in Peppermint Extract and fill a pastry bag, fitted with a star tip.
  7. Place sticks a few inches apart on prepared sheet pans.
  8. Pipe onto the sticks and drop silver, grey and white sprinkles onto the meringues.
  9. Bake for 90-120 min. Turn off oven and do not open door, but let meringues sit for 2 hours until they lift off paper easily.

    Alexis, we’re so sorry to hear you’re having issues with these minty meringues! Chef Barbara has a few tips that should help: make sure your bowl and whisk are very clean, a quick wipe-down of both with a little vinegar could be all you need. Also, fresh egg whites can behave differently than store-bought whites so that could be another culprit. Meringues can be tricky, let us know if you need more help!

    Happy baking!

    What am I doing wrong?! I’ve made the recipe 3 times and it NEVER turns smooth and silky, it’s always really light and fluffy and airy! I’m following the directions exactly as written. I have no idea what I’m doing wrong! Please help me!

    When reading the recipe it includes 1/2 cup grape seed oil. I assume this is a mistake? I cannot understand how this would be added to the recipe. Maybe it could be corrected so someone does not try to use it in the recipe, or at least an explanation if it is somehow used
    Thanks. Love the idea for the pops. They are beautiful.
